For any of those interested - I purchased a 250GB Lacie FA Porsche external hard drive recently. Since I had no Firewire port card I had to go with the USB2.0 - it runs awesome with very respectable transfer speed. It is stackable, small, and sleek. Their customer support is awesome - had a question, called them, and had an answer in under 3 mintues! Price is good too - got it directly from Lacie and it only cost me $175.
I recommend it bigtime for anyone looking for good, pretty cheap and easy file storage. Great for downloading those disappearing GD sdb's and storing before burning!!!!

Only caveat is - buy a longer USB cable since the one in the box is only 18" long - can pick up a nice Monster USB 7' for around $30

I have two 500 gb lacie, one died on me after I tried to defrag in windows, I suggest being careful with this as it is basically a mac drive. Also have seagate and maxor both are working fine
